Kitty Bonnets in the Wild

It’s not a great secret that 1. we love “Bonnets in the Wild” pictures and 2. we’re pretty sub par when it comes to product photography, or any photography really. I mean, we can’t be great at everything, although don’t mention that to Mandy… So that’s why it was so exciting for us when we hooked up with Meredith Rose Photography cuz on top of being great herself, she takes amazing photos. Pair her skills with an adorable mother/daughter duo … Read More

Toddler Bonnet Patterns

Hi Friends! Guess what! You’ve probably guessed by the title, but… Our toddler bonnet patterns are up on etsy now! Yeah! You know, when we started making bonnets, it never occurred to us that someone might want to put their toddler in a bonnet. We thought 18 months was the tops someone would want one for their babe. Let’s face it, it’s been a few days since I’ve had a toddler (about 4380, google tells me) and Mandy was still … Read More

Bonnets Bonnets Bonnets Piss

How much time can a person think about bonnets without going insane? No really, I legitimately want to know the answer to this. I think my time might be up. As I type this, I am watching a man piss outside the studio. It happens more than you might think. It’s because we are the only space in the back of the plaza. People think it’s private back here. Guess what, guys, it’s not… I can see you. I’m watching … Read More

Changed: Babies, Studios and Me

posted in: about us, polluted pixie, update | 0

It’s been almost a year. Hi. As we said in our last post, 11 months ago, things were changing, and boy did they. First we moved. We moved into a space so small we had to get rid of most of our carefully collected hoard. Mandy made me halve my Christmas collection (it hurts just to type that).   We spent weeks arranging and rearranging our small studio, trying to fit all the things we kept into it. Eventually we … Read More

posted in: Lissy, polluted pixie, update | 0

We’re bad at this. Blogging. We’re aware of this. We are bad at many things that require motivation. I could list them all, but I’m here for a good time, not a long time. Just kidding, it’s the opposite of that, really.   These are some of the things we’ve been doing while not blogging:         And then our bestie Kirstie put us through 66 hours of hell while she squeezed this nugget out. 66 hours. It … Read More

diy: baby celtic knot headband

  Well, it’s fallen to me to be the Maker of Things for my baby that Mandy is Hosting, as Mandy is too miserable tired to make anything. Well, I’d be doing it anyways since, whenever Mandy finds something she wants that looks make-able, she looks at me and says sweetly, “Will you make it for me?” and then bats her snuffaluffagus eyelashes. Mostly I laugh at her and say no, since I’m immune to her eyelashes, but nobody says … Read More

A Girl Baby or a Boy?

posted in: polluted pixie, Poppy, Pregnancy | 1

“Maaaandy! This article says that tiny girl fetuses have their placenta on the left and boys have them on the right! What side was yours on?!” Meems closes one eye, deep in thought, holds up a finger, moves it around and says, “Left… no… I don’t know.” So we get out the ultrasound photo and look and…     … we don’t know. Does Poppy even have a placenta? Maybe she gets her nutrients parasite-like from her mother’s bloodstream like … Read More
